This is really really good! The graphics and audio are great, and the game has so many interesting and surprising moments. I only have a few very small negative things to say and that is: there's no checkpoint in the game so if you fail you have to fully restart. The chocolate bars don't seem to do anything. And when the chase part begins, it goes from dark to very bright suddenly which is a bit of a clash for the eyes.

Would love to see this game expanded with more levels. Really great job overall!

Awesome submission for this jam! I loved how you managed to keep the game both atmospherically spooky and cute.

This was so a good and atmospheric game. I LOVE the art and the music. I think they could be the best in this Jam (I didnt play every game so idk).

But at one moment after the monster said "Are you hungry" I didnt realised I was running against a black wall until I tried to go left after I think 1 minute.

I also forgotten about the jam theme until I had to escape.

The game (especially the music and the art) captured my feelings.

I had such a good experience,

Good Job

Great game but I really felt like the movement was a bit clunky. Other than that I would have liked to have a checkpoint. Everything else was impeccable you really nailed the atmosphere with the lighting and I was genuinely scared in that first bit, so great job.

Did I steal that guy's chocolates? Not cool... no wonder he murdered me!

haha I think his motives are unknowable to mere humans, but that's a likely possibility!

This is a game with ups and downs. The mood and atmosphere is amazing, especially when the monster appears. Omg, it was genuinely creepy. Though, the messy blur of a sprite he becomes when he starts chasing you is... well, it is terrifying (for sure) but not in the same creepy way as he was in the gloom dark of the basement.

Anyway, fun game, with some great graphics. I would recommend trying to use the same resultion for all art, that will make the game look more complete :)

Thanks for making it, had fun!

Thanks for you're nice feedback! I put a lot of effort into the atmosphere, so I really appreciate that! and yeah, the monster only really looks good it the dark unfortunately.

I also love the atmosphere on your game. The sprite work and ambient sounds really blend together nicely and really make you feel like you're on a deserted space ship.

Thanks again, hope you had fun with the jam!
